One of a kind wood-burned keepsakes, handmade with love

Ylöjärvi, Finland | 210 Sales

Announcement    Update 3: Last November I was diagnosed with AS (Ankylosing Spondylitis), and this very much affects my ability to do any more woodworking and pyrography. I used to do this as my full-time job. I am not able to do that anymore. I hope I can still continue this as a hobby .. maybe .. and hopefully continue to make pendants, on sporadic good days with little pain ... So, after having been away for A FULL YEAR now ....my passion for woodworking and pyrography has not died away,.. but my shop will no longer be a constant flow of new items as it was last year. If and when I am able, I hope to add an item here and there...
Thank you all for your understanding. Feel free to keep following my Facebook page Iona Wood Art, where I keep in touch with my fans, share any news about my life and coping with this incurable auto-immune disease .. Thanks! :)

UPDATE 2: Well, August came and August went ... I am still not in a good enough shape to be able to continue woodworking. The shoulder pain comes back as soon as I start doing anything with force, i.e. sawing, carving, sanding. Believe me, I tried!!! ). Back issues that started in May, still prevent me from sitting, pyrographying, drawing (or walking and sleeping for that matter!). Further testing is being done .. currently I'm waiting for a definitive diagnose. More news later ...

UPDATE1:
For medical reasons I am taking a break from making new items. The items currently in my shop can still be purchased and will be mailed out the very next day as usual, but unfortunately I cannot make any new items or take on any commissions at the moment. Thank you for your understanding! I hope to be back at it soon! <3

    Hi, I am Iona, and I am the creator of these pendants.

    Inspired by nature and my love for woodworking, I cut, carve, shape and sand these jewels by hand, honouring their individual shape and color.

    All my pendants are made from reclaimed Finnish wood. Wood that would have otherwise ended up in a fire place. So it's sustainable, reclaimed wood. No trees have died by my hand! ;) My pendants are not machine produced, but cut and carved using hand and rotary tools. The rings are turned, with help of a lathe.

    The images are burned into the wood - an art form also known as pyrography. Each piece is different. Each is unique; the only one of its kind. They have been treated with beeswax oil or Danish oil, giving them a protective, matte finish. In addition, the rings have several coats of CA glue, to give them a more durable, shiny and water resistant finish.

    These designs are my own, but I happily take custom orders! If you see something on my page that you like and you wish to have a slightly different or personalised version, that's totally possible. Also, if you have an idea for a pendant, ring - or other type of jewelry - feel free to send me a message and we can brainstorm. I can pretty much make you any kind of shape, with any type of wood burned image. The only limit is your imagination!
